Black Gold think you can dance. Really. Their inspirational indie anthem is being featured as the exit montage music on 'So You Think You Can Dance.' Now, the Brooklyn, N.Y.-based indie rockers invite fans to film their own moves and upload them to YouTube.
"The heart of the song is about a time in a person's life when his or her faith is being tested in the most challenging way they've ever known," Black Gold explained to Spinner.
The contestants on the Fox TV dance competition put their passion and dreams on the line. Their test of faith is our television entertainment. And so, one by one, the contestants are eliminated and their dreams of dance stardom are temporarily halted. Cue the uplifting Black Gold track! Now it's not so sad anymore. After all, they had a chance to shine.
The contestants break-dance, cha-cha and soar through their exit montages, but signature pirouettes and high leaps aren't entirely necessary for Black Gold's fans entering their contest. Substitute skill with creativity and originality, and the person with the most YouTube hits, the biggest laughs and the best vibe will get free dance lessons. See the brave souls that have already uploaded their best moves -- silly hats and all -- on Black Gold's contest site.
No excuses! Here is their official music video for all you dance-a-long needs. Get movin' and shine!
